“The Kitty Tube- Generation 3 is Guaranteed to keep the weather out” The Kitty Tube is simply the highest quality, best insulated outdoor cat house on the market today!
New and improved for 2016, The Kitty Tube GENERATION 3 - Outdoor insulated cat house. The GENERATION 3 Improvements include:
- New improved Main Door Awning with Flap: The main door awning has been completely re-designed for 2016 for improved rain/snow protection, a better fit, better retention, and it now includes a gasket to eliminate any water weepage around the edges. The new improved clear removable flap door has also been redesigned to repel wind and fit better. This new clear door flap can be installed and removed easily without tools. This clear door flap will help keep heat inside the Kitty Tube during cold weather seasons. This new awning/door flap combination will fit all previous model Kitty Tubes that have the Kitty Tube LOGO on the sides. This new improved awning is also available for all older model Kitty Tubes. See separate listing.
- All new top lid vent cap: All Generation 3 Kitty Tubes will now include a top lid vent cap. This cap is needed to eliminate moisture laden air that can build up under the top lid. This moisture laden air can cause condensation in certain temperature swings. This cap serves the same purpose as the vents on the roof of your own home that expel excessive moisture in the winter and heat in the summer. This new vent cap is very important in maintaining a dry interior for your cat. NOTE: This cap is also sold separately to install on all older model Kitty Tubes, and will greatly improve its performance. . A 1½ inch hole is needed on the top dead center of the lid to install. We recommend using a standard 1½ inch hole saw to make this hole.
- Scratch Guard™ Interior: The New Kitty Tube- GENERATION 2 , with new and improved Scratch Guard™ and vapor proof interior. The Scratch Guard™ material is extremely durable, and is on all interior surfaces. It will virtually eliminate damage from clawing, and will considerably reduce condensation from forming in cold temperatures. The new Scratch Guard™ materials are also on the Double Insulation Assembly.
- New Insulation: The New Kitty Tube-GENERATION 3 insulation is now easier to remove and clean. No longer is the insulation formed into a permanent circular shape, but the new insulation with Scratch Guard™ will lay flat when removed for ease of cleaning. The new Scratch Guard™ material on all interior surfaces is also moisture proof, mold proof, mildew proof, and bacteria proof. Deodorizing and sanitizing of the interior is now a breeze, as cat urine or spray from a male cat will not soak into the Scratch Guard™
- Ventilation Hole Awnings: The New Kitty Tube GENERATION 3 now includes awnings that protect the handle/ventilator holes in the lid from rain and snow. No more is there a need to close the handle/ventilation holes when rain is imminent. These new awnings completely protect the openings, and provide a comfortable handle to remove the lid or move the Kitty Tube.
- Drainage System: The revised bottom surface of the New Kitty Tube GENERATION 3 is slightly elevated off the ground and it now incorporates a built in channel and drainage system to eliminate any subsequent moisture that might enter the Kitty Tube due to unforeseen circumstances.
The Kitty Tube GENERATION 3 provides a safe, economical, and maintenance free shelter for your cat. Designed for outdoor use, the Kitty Tube is fully insulated to be cool in the summer and ultra warm in the winter. The shell is made entirely from post consumer recycled milk and detergent bottles making the Kitty Tube a very green product AND The Kitty Tube is MADE IN THE USA!
The Kitty Tube has a removable top lid, and is seamless in construction. The one piece construction provides for a smooth interior which is easily cleaned with a simple spray of the garden hose. The dome lid keeps your pet dry in even the heaviest of rains, and with the included machine washable custom pet pillow, the Kitty Tube will provide your cat a safe, secure, and dry home. The geometric shape resists wind, and is naturally preferred by cats. The high quality, fully insulated Kitty Tube is strongly recommended for all outdoor cats and also creates a safe and secure haven if your cat is to give birth.
About our 1 door design: The unique door design provides easy passage for your cat, but will not allow a predator like dogs or coyotes to get to your cat. The Kitty Tube was intentionally designed with only one door. There are several reasons for this design:
- With one door, the exceptionally insulated Kitty Tube will retain the majority of the heat your cat produces inside, compared to other designs with two doors that allow excessive air movement through the shelter.
- One door will keep your cat safe and secure as predators cannot fit their head inside the unique door design of The Kitty Tube. Most small animals such as possums or raccoons are generally not a life threatening danger to your cat.
- We feel it is a misconception to provide a second door for an escape in case of a predator attack. If your cat leaves their safe haven of The Kitty Tube, it is now vulnerable to be caught by predators. Predators such as dogs and coyotes knowhow to catch a fleeing cat.
- Most litters born in a Kitty Tube are NOT moved as usual by their mother, as they feel safe inside!!!

New neighbors moved in a little under a year ago with 4 cats, all unaltered. After two litters, I said enough and started trapping. I also felt badly that their, ahem, "people" do nothing for them, allowing them to totally fend for themselves. I decided to set up a feeding station and a place for them to hunker down at night.
My cat rescuer friend suggested the Kitty Tube. It's awesome. From the moment I put it out, every cat has shown interest. But last night, for the very first time (and during a rare snowstorm), one of the boys finally took the plunge and went in. Yay! I have a WiFi camera positioned outside the door and it was fun to see him bathing and rolling on his back inside.
Back to purchase a second Kitty Tube (I'd like mom-cat to use one, she deserves a cozy place) as well as a couple of the heated pads.
Thank you, Kitty Tube! I feel so much better, knowing that in giving these cats a measure of care and comfort that they don't get at "home."

This is a quality product that is well designed using quality materials. We ordered this after reviewing the videos and the superior ratings provided by others that have purchased this product. A little pricey but when you consider the quality and all that is included it is well worth the price. Very easy assembly, fast two day prepaid Fed Ex shipment and should last many years. One minor suggestion would be to enlarge the hole located near the bottom to 1" in order to allow an electric plug to pass thru.
AWESOME COMPANY TO DEAL WITH!

This is my second purchase of a Kitty Tube because my three outside cats suddenly decided they didn't want to share theirs with the one. This wasn't in place for 30 seconds when the outcast pranced right in and made it hers. Always warm and toasty with the electric heating pad. We have these set-up in an outdoor storage area so they are out of the wind and elements. Very well made and insulated. It could be below zero and the cats come out of it all nice and warm. We live in northern IL so have some harsh winters. The cats come out to eat and poop, then run back in to stay warm. Mommy Kitty is getting old and her bones appreciate the heated seclusion. I must comment on the awesome customer service. You are dealing with a wonderful family who really care and provide incredible customer service. I just can't say enough positive things about the Kitty Tube and this awesome company. Do not hesitate to buy one.

I love, love, LOVE the Kitty Tube! Our outdoor kitty has been in it non-stop. We had a horrible cold snap in Texas a week or so ago and Dolly was dry, warm and happy.
